"One single vote can change history.” These aren’t the words of a president, historian or politician of any kind, but of Detroit techno hero Robert Hood, who knows the value of voting better than many. Hood didn’t see the importance of casting his vote when he was in his twenties, until he told an older co-worker he didn’t feel the need. “She tore me to pieces,” he says. “She read me the riot act, and asked, ‘Do you know how many people have died for you to cast your ballot?’”
